Mr. Magpie’s Mother’s Day Gift to me is a series of family portraits set in Central Park before we move to D.C. I am ecstatic — we have never gotten into the groove of having professional family portraits done, and I know I will forever treasure these images of us here in Manhattan, after muddling our way through a pandemic in Central Park’s embrace. I know I will want to display them in our future home and have already been eyeing a couple of pretty frames to showcase them and a couple of other recent favorite photos of my children in prominent places. Below, some gorgeous frames for favorite pictures. (All of these would make excellent gifts for loved ones, grandparents, teachers, caregivers, etc!)
Frames above and even more linked with descriptions below…
HANDSOME LEATHER FOR A STUDY (COMES IN GREAT COLORS!)
ACRYLIC FRAMES ARE GREAT FOR SHOWCASING HAND-WRITTEN NOTES, MEANINGFUL OPERA TICKETS, AND OTHER MEMORABILIA — ALSO LOVE THESE COLORFUL ONES FOR A CHILD’S ROOM
There are also loads of picture frame treasures on Etsy if you are willing to dig, including this vintage painted style, this porcelain floral, this fabric Liberty London style (sweet in a girl’s room), and this antique gilded bronze bow-topped frame.
P.P.S. Bathroom decor refresh.
